Community Foundation awards grants

WENATCHEE — Chelan-Douglas Land Trust, Boys & Girls Club of Brewster and Douglas County Fire District 5 are among 30 nonprofits in North Central Washington recently awarded Regional Impact Grants through the Community Foundation of NCW.

  • The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust received $5,000 to support the new “Kids & Nature Connections” program, a series of community-based events designed to get kids outside to explore and learn about nature, encourage a love of learning, and build a culture of conservation in future generations.
  • Boys & Girls Club of Brewster received $5,000 to provide enrichment programs that align with the three organizational outcomes: academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. The programs run through after-school and out-of-school programs during the school year and through summer camps.
  • Douglas County Fire District 5 received $5,000 to provide all of the district’s Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) with Basic Life Support (BLS) trauma bags for their personal vehicles. The aid bags will contain all the necessary equipment an EMT needs to provide aid to a patient prior to an ambulance arriving to the scene.
